New Destinations Arrive
FLL's route map continues to expand with new domestic and international destinations. A handful of new routes are scheduled to launch during the first quarter of 2019, adding more destination choices from FLL. Here's a round-up of recently-launched routes:
• Silver Airways: New service to Pensacola, Florida began on February 13 and to Daytona Beach on January 16

The additional routes serve to boost FLL's overall capacity to connect travelers with more U.S. and international gateways. In December, JetBlue added new seasonal service between FLL and Steamboat Springs, Colorado, which ran through March 30. That same month, Spirit also rolled out new year-round service to Cali, Colombia, its fifth Colombian destination served from FLL. Meanwhile, Frontier resumed service between FLL and Islip, New York and Trenton, New Jersey in November.
